^I bet. Apricot's belong in jelly, not in my beer.
I tried it based on the reputation of DFH, and the "hop" part, but I should have known. Fruity beers are generally suck, although their Raisin D'etre is not bad. But raisin is a flavor that just seems like it could be ok in a beer.
DFH is a good company, but to me they seem a bit overrated.
Now there's a killer brewery.
^Nice avatar, speaking of which. The Bastard is a favorite of mine.
Apricot is a pleasant flavor in tripels and strong ales. Raisin is common in doppelbocks and strong dark ales. I can't think of any fruit that I couldn't see working in beer. Tomato is not a fruit.
We don't get Stone in IL. Sucks.
Thanks. Good shit indeed!
ive been meaning to try the bastard ales. specifically the dirty bastard. what are they like?
Arrogant Bastard is strong, bitter, hoppy and good! Not as purely hoppy as some IPAs, but just as bitter. 7.2% abv.
Some of my other favorites from Stone brewery are:
Old Guadian barlywine style ale
Ruination double IPA
I'm drinking Miller High Life tonight. Connoisseurs: be appalled.
damn, i dont like hoppy tastes
To further intensify the repulsion I should add that it is from a room temperature can.
Miller High Life is awesome
It's my favorite dirt cheap beer at the moment. I have no doubt it repulses some regulars of this thread however.
I used to drink High Life Ice when i was a kid. 5.9 ALC FTMFW!
At the time that is...now i can't stomach anything packaged in a 30 pack.
I have money for quality beer now. Back then I'd throw in for beer and never knew what my buddy's brother would bring me back.
I have money for quality beer, but I'd rather spend it on music
Seriously, while you fuckers are spending 9 dollars on a huge bottle of Arrogant Bastard, I'm unloading that money on some fucking quality music.
I'm going to go grab myself another Natural Light
Some of us buy both.
That's too easy
The Bastard is only from $3-$4 for a bomber (22oz).
For me, my goal is not to get drunk, so I typically only have one bomber or from 1-4 (usually 2) stronger (~6%-10% abv) beers at a time. Since I don't drink large quantities and I really like the more expensive beer, it works out fine. Plus I am old and have a good job.
